Front Hood Hinges

Having trouble with keeping my hood up and canít seem to get the hinges to catch. Any one have any trouble shooting tips on how to make them work again. Iíve tried W D 40 on them and I can rotate the star a little using the screwdriver. Not even sure how to remove the front hood hinges. Help!!!

Those hinges are "timed"
Need to be in perfect alignment to function properly.
Try the 356 Registry for more info.
Good Luck!

Here's a link to a 356 Registry thread. Also, I remember an article in 356 Registry many years ago suggesting the tips of the stars could be worn and the fix was to TIG weld a little metal back on them and dress them with a file. ‚ÄĘ View topic - Hood hinge hang-up.
